The Miller debate continues

Last updated : 16 August 2002 By Dave Burgess
After a convincing 3-1 win over Walsall, albeit with a 10-minute wobble in the second half, Wolves turn their attentions to Burnley on Saturday.

The big talking point amongst the fans though, in both the Stan Cullis stand and the pubs, is will Miller make way for Deano ?

Miller has returned to full fitness during the summer after losing form when sidelined with his broken collar bone last season.

In the two opening games he's had a great chance to stake a permanent starting role with the injury to Deano.

The fans weren't happy when he was substituted on Wednesday and now the heat is on Jones to satisfy a large and hungry squad of players wanting to be No's 1-11 rather than 12-20.

Miller has stated, through the media, that he won't be happy to play second fiddle to Blake and Deano.

Being an expensive signing at £3 million you would think he would be an automatic choice.

However, you have to stake your claim with goals and form and Miller may not get the chance to extend his run in the first team. This will be a test of character for the young Scotsman as if he isn't picked how will he react ?

After all there is no 'I' in team.

All the other professionals at the club want a peice of the action but they have to wait for their opportunity. Even Paul Ince can't expect to walk into the side after the displays from Ivar and Alex.

I think that Deano and Blake are the best striking pairing as although Blake has his critics, he holds the ball up well and did look sharp against Walsall.

Therefore, I personally expect Miller to make way for Deano on Saturday.

As to if Miller replaces Newton on the right or goes to the bench we will find out - but regardless he has to get on with it.

I think Miller will become a great player, he just has to bide his time and take the opportunities.

Get a goal Kenny and prove your point.

Come on the Wolves !!
